Little people hopping around
That you do not even see
You could see them if you wanted to
But instead you let time flee
It is alright though, they do not need you
They have fun on their own
They laugh and dance and skip and sing
And you do not even know
You are too caught up in worries
Too afraid of beating the drum
Too worn out and too busy
To let yourself in on the fun
You miss out on adventures
And you're missing good people to meet
You could stop missing out on the goodness in life
If you could stop stirring your feet
Don't you see you've mixed it all up?
Have you forgotten the joy?
Stop burying yourself in nonsense slush,
View the world as a little boy.
You deem odd things important
Have you forgotten how to breathe?
Look at this freedom that you hold
Do not make it harder than it needs to be
You do not want to be boring, do you?
You silly, silly man
Re-evaluate this life
You hold here in the palm of your hands
